Updating the city council during their May 11 meeting, Anamosa City Administrator Jacob Sheridan said he city facilities would remain closed to the public through at least the end of May.

Sheridan said that the department heads are meeting on a weekly basis to discuss a timeline for city facilities to at least partially reopen and what that might look like.

“It’s not going to be like it was before,” Sheridan said during his report to the council, citing things like curbside pickup at the library and appointments at the Lawrence Community Center.

Sheridan said most city staff is on a weekly rotation to help limit exposure risks.

“While the state may be past their highest case load, I’m not sure Jones County is,” Sheridan said.

Jones County currently sits at 34 positive cases, as of May 11.

Council members discussed how the city was going to complete its necessary work, like mowing, while properly observing safety guidelines.
